Robotic Surgery at Mon General Hospital
State-of-the-art minimally invasive surgery often involves the use of robotic-assisted surgery. At Mon General Hospital, our Surgical Services Department is equipped with a da Vinci Surgical System. This system utilizes advanced, robotic, computer and optical technologies to assist your surgeon with your operation.
The da Vinci Surgical System does not act on its own. Its movements are controlled by your surgeon. The da Vinci Surgical System has a 3D high definition vision system, special instruments and computer software that allow your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
da Vinci surgery is a less invasive technique than traditional “open surgery.” With da Vinci surgery, the incisions made in your body by your surgeon are much smaller than the incisions made during open surgery. This means:
